    I think the recall went up to 2010, some of the guys in the states got notices.
    You can get a bit better MPG with the newer gen - 2016 but they will cost you more to buy.
    If you could find a good low km 2014 or 2015 they are very capable trucks.
    2016 you can get an Offroad with crawl control and rear diff lock, Hill descent control.
    Are you looking for a 5 foot bed or 6 foot bed ? Double cab or access cab ?

    Test drive both the 2nd gen and the 3rd gens. Engines are quite different and drive differently.

    I would just walk into the nearest Toyota dealership and see what new would cost. That way you have a baseline for looking on Kijiji or any other used trucks. Even sitting through a sales pitch might help you get basic info about the Tacoma.

    Then try some used trucks,
